My xbox 360 wont connect to any xbox live partys or any of my friends games. it is very inconvenient, and is starting to make me mad.

Make sure that you have a gold account, if so, then it may be a problem with your network, some networks are open, and some are closed. Closed networks make it hard for you to connect with people and play games. Theres not much that I know of to do if your network is closed.

Console keeps saying open tray with any game placed in

This is a problem with the magnet on top of the dvd drive motor, it may have become detatched, which means the drive will need stripping down and the magnet glueing back on. Or the motor is worn, if this is the case, lay the console flat, when you close the draw give the console a rap a few times with your knuckles(dont go mad) over where the centre of the game would be, this should dislodge it, this is only a quick fix the drive will still need repairing or changing.
Hope this helps.
